SpaceLink Presents at ISSR&D Conference 2022
SpaceLink System Engineer, Cameron Sanders, presents: SpaceLink-ISS High-Speed Optical Relay End-to-End Demonstration on Wednesday, July 27 at the at the 11th annual International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC)
SpaceLink Systems Engineer, Cameron Sanders, presents: SpaceLink-ISS High-Speed Optical Relay End-to-End Demonstration on Wednesday, July 27 at the at the 11th annual International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC), at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The presentation describes the benefits of a relay system in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and how optical intersatellite links (OISLS) eliminate delays between data transfers. The SpaceLink relay system demonstration will validate the use of a 10 Gigabit per second optical terminal for real-time voice, video, and data relay for ISS crew, onboard systems, and experiments. Axiom Space is SpaceLink’s implementation partner for the demo.
The conference is designed to demonstrate the many ways the International Space Station (ISS) helps companies maximize their R&D goals. The ISSRDC is hosted by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), manager of the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory; NASA; and the American Astronautical Society (AAS).
The ISSRDC features dynamic keynote speakers, plenary presentations, technical sessions, workshops, an investor session, and other engaging activities designed to highlight a “Decade of Results” in space station science. Over the past 10 years, the ISS National Lab has facilitated the launch of hundreds of research investigations and technology demonstrations that showcase how the ISS National Lab leverages the unique properties of microgravity to conduct valuable research, while helping advance the commercialization of low Earth orbit.
The SpaceLink relay system provides secure data from any orbit, any time.
